Harry Reid - Sharron Angle debate: Supreme Court
Reid said he did not agree with opinions from Antonin Scalia, but found him "masterful" in his command of the law. He also cited Byron White, "Whizzer White," as an exemplary justice -– adding that he was a great football player as well.
He did not say who he would oppose on the court.
Sharron Angle said she admired Clarence Thomas, saying he was an example of a justice who does not legislate from the bench. She added that she would not have voted to confirm Elena Kagan or Sonia Sotomayor. She charged that they said they would vote against 2nd Amendment rights.
Reid helped shepherd the nominations of Kagan and Sotomayor through the Senate.
